Paper 2 Tree second annual outreach event

On November 6th, 2018, the BAM lab participated in the second annual Paper 2 Tree kickoff outreach event at Booker T Washington STEM academy in Champaign, IL. Professor Wissa and graduate students taught the fourth grade class about the advantages of boi-inspired design and the difference between gliders and commercial airplanes. The BAMers assisted the students in building their own bio-inspired glider and presented the lab’s ornithopter as an example of a powered, bio-inspired flapping wing drone.
